Key Biscayne Mag X All of Us

Everybody’s health tells a story. What’s yours? We’re all human, but we’re not all the same. Often our differences—like age, ethnicity, lifestyle habits, or where we live—can reveal important insights about our health. @allofusum is a research program and they aim to build a database of health information that researchers can use to study health and illness and create better treatments. One of the most exciting parts of participating is the option to receive your DNA results! #JoinAllofUs
